Carte Blanche à Baptiste Loiseau is a limited edition fine champagne cognac named after Baptiste Loiseau, Rémy Martin’s Cellar Master who was appointed in 2014 at the age of 34. He personally selected this Carte Blanche N°1 from eau-de-vie, more than 20 years old, laid down by his predecessors.
Baptiste Loiseau says one particular vat from the Gensac-la-Pallue cellar truly embodied the spirit of Rémy Martin, “revealing harmonious notes of lilac and spicy notes of nutmeg. The remarkable long finish, with intense aromas of leather, incense and black tea, has given life to this powerful and refined cognac.”
Bottled at cask proof (41.1% alc./vol.), this limited edition of 7,000 bottles is presented in a traditional Charentes bottle packaged in an elegant box. Revealed in September 2016 and available from November 2016.
